Now getting rare and sought after, these early Jeeps are hard to find in this general condition and are proper off roaders with on road capabilities, even if that is posing on Kensington High Road. Imported from America to Spain where it resides, it has the easy to live with 4 cylinder motor and manual transmission both of which are described as very healthy. Body work is unusually straight and underneath is excellent. Interior, what there is of it, is in good order and the wet weather gear is with it too, the hood is in great shape. Price is pounds in Spain(@ 1.12 ex rate) it comes with full USA documentation to enable registration on to an age related number plate. Assistance to do so here in the UK freely given and world-wide transport can be arranged.
Just arrived so awaiting preperation and not to be confused with its lesser sibling the 4.0 petrol or 2.7 Weesel, is this nice, fully loaded, 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee “Overland” with its full house 4.7 V8 petrol that gives out a quoted 263 horses but more importantly 325 lb/ft of torque versus the 195/230 quoted for the 4.0l version. This is a proper off roader while still giving 20+MPG when on the road. As usual it comes with all the toys, electric everything, seats, doors, windows, mirrors,dual zone climate control etc etc with both front seats being heated as well. All wrapped up in a full leather interior. Outside on the corners it has picked up the odd bruise otherwise very nice and it will have a full valet, a fresh MOT and for piece of mind a 6 month warranty at the asking price of £2695
Jaguar XJS prices were artificially low for so long, the cars being almost unwanted,that people were using them as doners for some pretty nasty kit cars and even banger racers! Well folks those days have gone and now values of these gracefull Grand Tourers has gone up almost month on month, with nice “correct” cars selling for a premium. This superb condition 1990 3.6 version was first owned by Saachi and Saachi to be used by one of their directors. In 1993 it was sold to its second owner who had it until 2011. Then in 2012 it left the UK to go into a private collection in Rome Italy, staying there until recently repatriated to the Uk and having driven the 1000 or so miles back faultlessly. It was never deregistered so has stayed on its original plate and still only has 67000 miles on the clock! Comes with its manuals and a fully stamped service book plus MOT certificates, to back up this low mileage.
As the great man Jeremy Clarkson said ” You gotta love a Jaaag!” and when one like this one turns up you have to agree. This superb “X308” is not only powered by the sought after 4 litre version of Jags then new V8 but is the rare and then very expensive to buy, long wheel base Sovereign. As such not only do you get all the usual refinements but also more elaborate/expensive wood veneer in “highly figured” burr walnut with the window control/ashtray trim panels also done in wood veneer, opposed to the plastic found in lesser models, even the traditional leather interior uses a higher quality leather. Then you have the extra 4 inches of rear leg room and the roof line is raised towards the back for extra head clearance. Exterior wise a Sovereign can be distinguished by the complete use of highly polished steel and chrome work around windows and rear light clusters, as well as polished radiator grill and boot garnish. This particular car was a Jaguar dealer’s car for its first 7 months then only 2 private keepers since and still with only 80K on the clock. Coming with an excellent fully stamped service […]
Imported from the States in 2015 by a UK Harley specialist with 76000 “American freeway” miles on the clock and purchased by its current owner. This very nice condition is offered for sale by us on his behalf. Prior to sale the same dealer removed the trouble some fuel injection and replaced it with a carburetor along with Vance and Hines pipes. NOW it not only runs spot on,it sounds like only a Harley can! Cosmetically it is in great order with all the chrome being complemented by white wall tyres. Paint has a lovely deep shine, in fact the only thing that lets it down is a mechanic while test riding it after a service, forgot to clip the l/h panier lid on snd it fell of at low speed damaging the leather. Mechanically all is excellent and the owner says ” He would ride it to Scotland and not think twice about it! So yes it is up on the miles but you would not believe it looking at it. A 1450c Road King for the price of a good Sportster! NOTE: The personal plate has been removed so mow back on its original age related 53 plate.
Full details and better pictures to follow once the weather improves. But suffice to say that this superb looking Harley Chop is now being offered for sale on behalf of its owner. As you can see in the background the owner likes his “toys” and purchased this bike to go with his various hot rods and classic cars. Being the owner of a very busy garage, he soon realised that he just does not get the time to ride it so has decided it’s best to move it on rather than leaving it stood unused. Overall build quality is very high and that big old Harley V-Twin has just been rebuilt by a local company, so no worries there and it sounds superb, definitely not a bike for the wall flowers out there! Not with us here so please call to arrange a viewing if seriously interested, as I say he is a busy man, Thanks.
Rare in the US, even more rare in Europe is this Limited Edition “007 Model” 2004 Thunderbird. Ford commissioned 700 only “worldwide” in this special Coral colouring to replicate the car driven by Halle Berry in the James Bond film “Die another Day” (the coral color is apparently the same colour as the Bikini she wore in the film I know, don’t ask??). As the title says, this rare and desirable Thunderbird was supplied new from the importers to Jonathan Ross (Google “Jonathan Ross Thunderbird” to see all the pictures). When the current owner received the car it had been stood unused for a time, the cosmetics had suffered and it had an engine fault that has since been rectified, along with a service that he carried out himself. The bright work on the outside of the car has been replaced so it’s now as new again and any small defects in the paintwork were professionally corrected. The interior needed little more than a good clean but the vendor had all the seats recolonised, he did however retain the tasteful Leopard print sun visors Mr Ross had fitted ! (See picture). What you now have is a mint, low mileage […]
Having been driven by its Italian owner from the Pordenone region in Italy to the UK last year, this very rare Left Hand Drive 1.3 Automatic 2 door estate MK2 escort is now being offered for sale on his behalf. Now I can hear you saying “1.3 Auto, hah!!” but strangely enough it actually gets on down the road quite well, not that its not crying out for a nice 1600GT or Pinto conversion to liven it up, preferably with a manual gearbox to suit, but not everyone wants or can have a manual and where would you find another automatic? Body wise, being in a dry climate all of its life has staved off the dreaded tin worm and now past the bits on the arches coming through (Please follow the link to our website for further close up pictures of these areas), after a year standing basically un-used in the UK and some age related dents etc, it is incredibly solid for a mid-seventies Ford, above and below. Rear bumper has suffered a soft “push” in the middle as has the front (have you seen the parking in Italy!) Its 1300 Kent engine is very sweet with absolutely […]
